All this week, the Chicago legal community has been focusing on the need to give back to the community through pro bono legal services. It’s the 16th Annual Pro Bono week sponsored by the Chicago Bar Foundation.
Tonight is particularly special because a virtual pro bono fair will be held starting at 4 p.m. that shows lawyers various opportunities to volunteer in and around Chicago.
More than 40 of Chicago’s legal aid, pro bono, community service and mentoring organizations will gather at virtual “tables” to meet with members of the legal community. You can hear directly from legal aid and pro bono attorneys about how you can make a difference. There’s an opportunity available to fit everyone’s schedule, interests, skills and goals.
Go here to register for the event that starts at 4 p.m. Hopefully, everyone can find a bit of time to give back to so many who are in need during these very difficult times.
